This review is from: Point and Line to Plane (Dover Fine Art, History of Art) (Paperback)
Although written 100 years ago, there is much here to interest the serious artist. Kandinsky was explaining the groundbreaking work done by artists of that time and making Abstract Art accessible. What he has to say about Art is as relevant today as it was then. A seminal work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to see it in the eyes of Kandinsky, 16 April 2013

This review is from: Point and Line to Plane (Dover Fine Art, History of Art) (Paperback)
The renowned artist, famous for his abstract works, seemingly developed his own language in art and fortunately he describes this language in his second book "Point and Line to Plane". Being written in 1926, 16 years after his first revolutionary work which is even shorter and thereby a must read "Concerning the Spiritual in Art" this seems to be a continuation of his to describe how his art changes after his Munich period and he undeniably succeeds in this attempt. We see that "Concerning the Spiritual in Art" detailed the value of Color and Form and we can see both valuable facets deeply explored mainly with his 1911-1913 works. This book manages to go into even further detail with form, exploring the importance of the relationship between points and lines on a plane. It is somewhat more categorical and scientific even by organizing everything into small paragraphs in almost a code like way. We can see this idea of point and line being expressed by some of his later works. All in all, an enlightening read that makes an otherwise unintelligible style of painting understandable.
